Free Boneyard Numbers Game


Looking for a fun game involving dominoes and the order of operations? 
Have you ever used dominoes in your classroom? Dominoes are one of those versatile tools
that have many purposes. Dominoes are generally not a standard math tool, but
they are great to have laying around. If you don’t have any in your classroom,
you can pick-up a cheap set at the dollar store.
The activity I am sharing with you today is called “Boneyard Numbers.” The basic idea is
that students turn over two dominoes and use the quantities on the dominoes to create
a number sentence that targets one of the uncovered quantities on the game
board.
 
The best thing about this activity is that it can be adapted to meet the needs of all
students! Whether a student just adds everything together or goes out on a limb
and tries to use all of the operations, the activity can meet his or her
ability level. “Boneyard Numbers” makes a great station and fast finisher
activity.
